Q:   Do you have a pet peeve about books? 
A: This feels like a loaded question as I sit here trying to think of an answer... and yet, I struggle to come up with one.
Okay, I'm probably not a fan of dual views, or multiple views for that matter. It has to be done right, like with Violent Ends by Shaun David Hutchinson. Check it out on Amazon; Fuck, that book  is epic!! Anyway, not usually a fan, I like my protagonist to be the only viewpoint. I'm boring that way. 
Oh, and I hate reading old English. UGH. So there's my peeves I guess. I probably have more and just don't know right now though. I irk easily... LOL

  4. Terrifying Tales is on my TBR list. Enjoy your current read!

  5. Thanks, I will add this to my classics to read! Have a nice Friday

  6. Now I want to go back and read The Tell-Tale Heart after years and years. Oh how his mind must have worked! Love it. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your week.

  7. The older I get, the more I appreciate his stories.

  8. Interesting excerpts. Have a great weekend!

  9. Poe is amazing. He was a pioneer is so many different genres.

    Yes, multiple points of view are very popular, but I find it comforting and easier to read when there's only one of two.

  10. It's been quite a long time since I read Poe. Maybe I'll pick his works up for Halloween!

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
